Our purpose is to provide the highest quality of education to all pupils within the context of Christian belief and practice.
The Christian ethos is at the very heart of the school which ensures that the traditional Christian values of respect, compassion and self-discipline are linked to the aspiration that every single pupil reaches their potential. We offer a balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all our pupils through academic and vocational pathways. We expect excellence in all subject areas and all other aspects of school life. We are proud to be a school of high aspiration and high achievement. Learning is quite rightly given prominence here. The quality of teaching matters and our recent awards, commendations, and our outstanding 2009 Ofsted report endorse this, and the Christian aspects of the school are celebrated in our denominational inspection of July 2014.
